As one of 'Time 100 Most Influential People of 2015', and wife of Kaye West who not only joins her on the list but makes one of the five selected cover faces for the issue, we thought we’d throw some extra light on Kim Kardashian, featuring her hardback Rizzoli-published coffee table book Selfish as our book of the week – we don’t know who invented the selfie but Kim Kardashian certainly owns it now...

Book of the week: 'Selfish' by Kim Kardashian

The photographic book features reams of approved selfies of the reality mogul who has even published some never-before-seen images in the book. Proving that there is nowhere that you can’t take a selfie, Kim sports her pout all over the world in the collection of smouldering images. Employing her skilful know-how of taking the most flattering shot, Kim’s up to the minute glamorous looks are spliced with some throw-back looks for a rounded insight into the larger-than-life star’s world.

The idea came about initially as a private collection of pictures for her husband Kanye, given both of their demanding schedules of global domination, the couple are often apart and Kim likes to keep her husband close, by sending him pictures of her wherever she may be. Through the magic of the selfie, Kim has compiled a modern day series of self-portraits that she shares with the world. 

Selfish by Kim Kardashian will be available worldwide from May 5.
